Last month we reported that a new Linux distribution was about to be released that had a major focus on cloud computing. That distribution was called Peppermint, and today it went live.
Peppermint combines the base Linux operating system with a number of cloud-based applications and services. The result is a lightweight distribution, but with integrated access to some of the most popular online apps. Better yet, Peppermint uses Mozilla Labs Prism so the cloud-based software looks and acts like desktop software.
